All because he fell in the shower

The boys had their dental check-ups this past Friday at Dr. Crystal’s. As always they were super excited to go. As we walked into the dental office we ran right smack into some more of Mr. Dunbar’s cousins. Their little guy had fallen in the shower that morning and they were there to get him checked out. This is the culprit. Innocent face, but that’s how they get ya.

He was waiting patiently on his mom’s lap. My hooligans jumped right into the exam chairs. The hygienists there are always so good with the boys. Taking the time out to show them what they are about to do and talking the process through.

Popeye was entranced with what was going on. He watched the whole time. July 692

Here’s Dr. Crystal showing us that Monkey’s bottom front teeth are loose. He was ecstatic!

Look at those big ol’ chompers that are ready to make their way out soon. Those are his uppers I think. Notice how there isn’t that much space for the big adult teeth…time to see an orthodontist.

And guess whose x-rays these are?

We already know he’s going to need orthodontic work. All three of them are.

And for the very first time, Dr. Crystal was able to join us for lunch.

We all headed to Rubios for a quick bite to eat.

She’s saying how cute my Bogie is. July 716-1

I would agree.July 733

This guy had his eye on me because I was watching all of his antics. Check this out.

He was tearing up all of the napkins. On the sly. July 731 

After lunch Dr. Crystal had to head back to work. (Boo.) But the rest of us went to the San Diego Botanical Gardens to climb in their tree house and have some fun.

Since we were at the Botanical Gardens I took one picture of nature. One picture.July 737

It was a nice impromptu afternoon full of kids, plants, toys, and dirt. And it all happened because of a fall in the shower… to which we are really sort of in an odd way grateful for.

This is what dinner looked like.July 852

I took a Motrin and passed out once we made it safely home.
